Every year for Thanksgiving, we do some traditional recipes and a few new creations — but no matter what side dishes we’re making, this one is always somewhere on the table.  Probably one of the easiest recipes on any Thanksgiving table, these sweet potatoes are a delicious, sweet, and rightfully well-loved holiday classic.

I hope everyone has an awesome holiday — I have so much to be thankful for this year, it’s hard to even get started!  But getting to spend time with our friends and family over the holiday season is — of course — on top of the list.  And Calvin and Coco are so excited for the turkey leftovers!

thanksgiving sweet potatoes and marshmallows


1 (29 ounce) can sweet potatoes
1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together the butter, sweet potatoes, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.  Place sweet potatoes in a medium baking dish.  Roughly mash the potatoes until their consistency is even.  Spread a layer of marshmallows over the sweet potatoes.

Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven 25 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are tender and marshmallows have melted.
